The Heat That Regenerates
The heat generated by the movement of electric charges stimulates repairing processes and has an antalgic and anti-inflammatory effect.
What Is Tecar Therapy?
TECAR (acronym meaning Capacitive and Resistive Energy Transfer), is an innovative therapy that uses endogenous heat production to treat Musculoskeletal Traumas and Pathologies. Although the therapy based on heat has been known and used for a long time for the treatment of articular and muscular pain, only with the application of this technology, which generates heat inside tissues, have substantial steps been made in terms of results and effectiveness. Tecar therapy is spreading more and more in the medical and physiotherapeutic fields due to its extraordinary effectiveness.
WE ARE THE FIRST PHYSIOTHERAPY CLINIC IN DUBLIN TO INTRODUCE TECAR THERAPY TO IRELAND.
Tecar is rarely found in clinics here which makes us proud to be unique experts in using this progressive technology. The results from this treatment are fast and scientifically proven.
An Highly Advanced Therapeutic Method For Treating Disorders Of The Musculoskeletal System.
Typical Conditions Where Tecar Therapy Is Used?
Bruise and sprains, post-surgery rehabilitation. Wear and tear conditions such as osteoarthritis (knee, hips, hands, shoulders elbows), herniated discs, spondyloarthritis (vertebral joints).
Acute and chronic pain, including back pain, lower back pain, tension, nerve root pain (radiculopathy), scar tissue.
Sports trauma, inflammation of tendons, muscle and joints, tendon overuse syndromes, inflammation of the pubic bone (osteitis pubis), heel and ankle pain.
BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS: BIOSTIMULATING │ ANTALGIC │ ANTI-INFLAMMATORY │ DECONTRACTING │ VASODILATOR
Production of endogenous heat deep inside tissues, too
Decrease in the viscosity of muscular and connective tissue
Increase in blood circulation
Stimulation of lymphatic drainage
Increase in metabolic activity
Increase in tissue oxygenation
Greater absorption of nutrients
Quick elimination of wastes and catabolits
Acceleration of regenerative processes
Release of endorphin and pain reduction
What Are Tecar Application Methods?
The Resistive Method is performed with non-insulated electrodes and is indicated for the treatment of highly resistant tissues: bones, cartilages, tendons, ligaments, fascias and fibrotic tissues. With this method it is possible to focus the therapeutic action on a given body part by placing the electrodes properly: the therapeutic action will develop along the current path between the electrodes.
INDICATIONS: DEEP AND LOCALIZED TREATMENTS FOR ARTICULATIONS, MUSCLES AND TENDONS.
The Capacitive Method uses a plate and an insulated electrode to treat tissues that have low resistance to current: skin, connective tissue, circulatory system, lymphatic system. The insulated active electrode generates a charge movement, mainly in the underlying tissues, in which the therapeutic action is focused.
INDICATIONS: STARTING PHASE OF THE TREATMENT | SURFACE THERAPEUTIC ACTION | TREATMENT OF SOFT AND HYDRATED TISSUES
Geometries and Therapy
Unlike other methods whose effects are limited to the skin and the surface of the body, DIACARE devices have a very effective action, as they reach the area of treatment even in depth. This is due to the technology in use, the possibility of using two different work methods, but also the possibility of placing the electrodes according to the geometries that are most suited to producing an effective therapeutic action in a specific point and with all the necessary power.
